Chill but hr is weird

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Fine workplace. Nobody really knows your there. Only two hour shifts but great pay. Basically just feeds patients and pass out meal trays. Hr is weird can’t give away shifts or take shifts, they only allow swaps.

Good team work, and working with Good heart

Taking care of my residents at the beginning of shift to make sure my residents are fine, I have learned a lot of good things about this place, like having genuine love for one another , and to work like one big family. The management are always on time for the request of both the residents and staff. The workplace was very good, no racism, very good atmosphere to work. The hardest part is when coworkers are not cooperative. The most enjoyable part is when taking care of my residents and residents very is happy .

It's a hospital job

No longer a safe place to work. This place has a lot of heart and the staff cares for the patients but upper management cares about money. They are so short staffed that it is no longer a safe place to work, in my opinion. Really too bad 😞

Fantastic Team, Upper Mgmt needs work

I absolutely loved my team. Work was good until pandemic hit and Bruyere who was already struggling really hurt. I will however always cherish the time I had working with my team.

You feel like part of a family at Bruyere

My absolute favourite thing about working at Bruyere is how close the entire team is. From nursing staff, to administrators, to RT’s, PT’s, OT’s, environmental services staff, kitchen staff, security staff and even the patients. It’s just one big family! You can always expect a big smile (even through the masks) and a giant hello walking down the halls from anyone you pass. And as for being a nurse here - I love it! There’s always support on the units and I’m never afraid to ask for help. My manager is one of the best in the business, and is extremely supportive. Yes, it’s heavy nursing work, there are not many PSW’s in the building, but I actually enjoy this. Also, doing care is a crucial part of our head to toe assessments, and sometimes I think nurses forget that. So I don’t mind it at all, let’s me get a good skin check in and keeps me busy throughout my shift. :)

Blaming Culture, if you are an RN don't come to work there

Poor management. Blaming culture at this organization is enforced. When critical incidents are reported always looking at overworked front-line staff to blame. Our unit was always working short and the patient ratio is so high as we had no PCAs either. It is a really, really, bad place to work. If you are a Registered Nurse do not work for Bruyere unless you are not worried about putting your nursing licence at risk.

Too many directors, not enough nurses. Poorly managed organization

Overworked nurses, no work-life balance, denying vacations but lots and lots of directors working at Bruyere. Much more for its size than any other regional hospitals, and Bruyere is not even an acute-care hospital. Bruyere is poorly managed from the top-down. If you are a RN stay far away, they will give you free snacks and food but will deny any vacation days you requested every time and mandate you to stay over your scheduling working hours. I learned at Bruyere that you have to stand-up for yourself. Nurses like everyone else deserved vacations to be with their families and to be treated fairly.

Share your experience to help others

Lack of consideration for people working there

Even if you applied for a full-time job (on the same floor same unit as indicated on your job offer) they move you to another unit at the last minute ALL THE TIME. Bruyere does not respect your contract. Your experience won't be safe for patients and you, because going to places you don't know is stressful.Colleagues with seniority won't help you to get info in general BUT those same people will prefer to report you on things you are not even aware of doing... So you get blamed, frustrated and lose confidence. There is absolutely NO SUPPORT from management nor staffing while you alert them about critical situations like understaffed situations, meals not given to patients... Finally, this is the only place I know in my entire career as a nurse where you do EVERYTHING with patients: wash them from A to Z because NO PCA making our days harder and risky for patients, difficult assignments interactions with the staff, admissions...and trash too. For the same salary rate, you can have much better somewhere else. I highly don't recommend this place to anyone, except if you want to lose your CNO's certification.

Bruyère is an awesome place to work!

Bruyère is an awesome place to work with amazing people, patients and plans for the future. With historical roots as being the first hospital in Ottawa, you can feel the amazing culture and mission within the organization. The people that I get to work with are passionate about their patients, and our patients are warriors on the road to recovery. Overall, Bruyère is an AMAZING place to work!

Bruyere review

Working as a practical nurse at Bruyere has been a good training experience. The learning process is supported by more experienced nursing staff and a nurse educators . The job is full care. Hygiene care, patient transfer, medication administration, patient advocate, assessments, documentation, wound care. All of these accomplished within a time parameter.The work is heavy because the patients are heavy and have comorbidity. More PCA are needed to help with the physical demands.


Not enough PCA to assist with heavy work load.

Travail valorisant

Bruyère offre un travail valorisant. Le travail d'équipe est très présent avec un atmosphère de famille.

Good organization to work at.

Very collaborative teams, managers are very supportive of the staff. Some units are more stressful and 'heavy' than other floors. The work environment is comfortable.

Great friendly environment

A great learning environment with more open-minded access to certain resources wherein another place would be very limited. This, in turn, broadens your learning curve and exposes to many different types of systems.

Productive and fun environment

This organisation is very well organised and productive in the work place. The management team is very supportive and is fun to work with. I personally think that Bruyère is the best work environment that I have worked in my career.

Après un certain temps , on s’aperçoit que l’atmosphère est toxique, promotion pour des gens sans diplôme payé le même salaire contrairement à d’autres qui étudie pour ce genre de poste . Dommage mais il y a une “clique” manque de reconnaissance. La majorité des directeurs brassent des nuages. Les poste sont pas définie équitablement. Aucune possibilité d’avancement, Beacoup de manager corrompu,Beaucoup
